So much of Devon is available by road but what about the stunning scenery and wildlife only visible by boat? Ensure you don’t miss out, take a trip with Stuart Line Cruises, Exmouth. Throughout the year you can sail on the River Exe, home to thousands of migrating winter birds and year round residents. During the Summer you can sail the Jurassic Coast Line viewing 250 million years of history or leave the car behind and sail to a local resort such as Torquay or Brixham. There’s no excuse not to discover the history, beauty and wildlife of Devon!

We went on what they called the Mulled Wine and Mince Pie Tour. The trip was about an hour and a half and included a glass of Mulled Wine & a Mince Pie the cost was quite reasonable at £9.50 per person. It was low tide so the distance we could travel upstream was limited due to the sand banks.... More

We had another great afternoon on the birdwatching cruise. Our guide was brilliant and the boat and crew were excellent. We saw 44 species in our three hours. Maybe you will get even more!

Yes, we are into are bird watching season. With thousands of migratory birds wintering on the River Exe thee;s no better way to see them than on one of our Guided Bird Watching Cruises. A 3 hour trip with a leading ornithologist's live commentary. Sounds like you had a really interesting trip. Thank you for reviewing it. More

Thank you for your lovely review. How brave of you to sit outside on a cold November day, we're glad the blankets did they're job. We do welcome dogs on our trips as long as they are under control & do not get stressed by a crowd or the boats motion. We advise owners but you know your dog better... More

We've been on many Stuart Line cruises and this most recent one didn't disappoint either. A firework cruise along the River Exe. It was cold but still enjoyable. The friendly staff and great value refreshments added to the occasion. Thank you Stuart Lines for maintaining your high level of service. We'll be back next year.

Really fantastic trip. Fun for all the family. All the staff were fabulous, friendly and always smiling, nothing is too much trouble. There were blankets put out on the top deck for passengers to use if they wished. Lovely refreshments available too.

We took a short trip up the Exe as a spontaneous choice when visiting Exmouth (although I am from the area). Helpful and really informative staff made it a really interesting trip - loads of interesting wildlife, including some seals. Thank you

Have done three trips this summer with this company. A trip to Brixham, a trip to Topsham and a trip around the river Exe. All of them were enjoyable and good value with knowledgable staff who could tell you about the surroundings and history of the areas. Nice facility of drinks on board which were brought to you on deck... More
